Here are a few photos following a recent visit to Dublin. The coast is a great spot for photographers as there are opportunities for great shots regardless of the weather.
Here are some pictures in and around the Inishowen Peninsula, Co. Donegal.
An area really worth visiting for its amazing scenery and rugged coastline. Includes Malin Head as a highlight.
Photos on a cold day at the Wassenaarse Slag. Used a 10x variable filter to extend the exposure to around 30s on some of them. Noted that variable neural density filters are not so easy to use at their maximum absorption range. The cross-polarisers cause all sorts of banding problems depending on the focal length of the lens (wide angle gives the most problems). I think I’ll buy a “simple”10x neutral density as it is generally true that I use the high absorption range much more than the low ranges (most suitable for video I guess as it allows you to adjust the shutter speed to a more sensible value in bright conditions).
A short drive from Belfast and you are in and among some amazing coastal scenery. The coast roads are great and provide picture opportunities plenty.
